PG Mix & Mingle Video: The Researcher Development Online Tool

The Researcher Development online tool has been available for a few weeks now. In case you missed the announcement, here’s the gist: the tool allows you to search for research-related resources and events across AUT. It lists several hundred workshops, online guides, seminars, conferences, advisory services, and special events. You can search for help with a new methodology, find upcoming networking events, identify who to contact with research concerns, get info on research seminars in your field, and so on.

Now it’s your turn! Try the tool here, enter your ID & password, and enter your search criteria on the right-hand side of the screen. (Be sure to search events “Tailored to: Postgraduate students” to eliminate anything that’s for staff members only.)

Oh, and by the way, there’s another mix & mingle on 23rd July at 4pm in WG308 (RSVP to This one includes a ceremony for recipients of the Vice-Chancellor’s Doctoral Scholar Awards. Come along to chat with other postgrads and staff from the University Postgraduate Centre… or just come for the free food.
